VAN BUREN LOFTS

Active and artsy in the West Loop

Van Buren Lofts, a paper mill renovated into condo units in 2007, targets Chicago's young professional demographic with its chic urban loft feel and dog-friendly policy.  When new owner Foxford Development arrived on the scene in 2011, they realized that the basic elements - great architecture and amenities - were in place, but buyers were having trouble imagining how to fully utilize the interior spaces.  Mary Cook Associates was invited to design this two-bedroom model unit, emphasizing multifuntionality and the fresh, vibrant design accents that resonate with home buyers in this area.
